What our graduates say

Vera Zabalueva

Darmstadt Business School offered a schedule that fits my working & private life with no compromise on life quality, and location perfectly fits me. Over pandemic the classes were changed to online with no influence on timing and amount of material given. Before even graduation, I have changed the company and my position from Manager to Senior Manager. and looking forward to more professional opportunities at my new company.

I decided to do the Darmstadt MBA amongst others because of its reputation as one of the best programs in Europe. The teachers are very competent, the program is well structured and flexible enough to combine studies, work and family even with small kids. Besides I am glad of the opportunity offered by the university to obtain a scholarship.

My most valuable take-away from the MBA program is the vision switch from thinking at an employee’s standpoint to a manager’s standpoint. Classmates are from various industries with different cultural backgrounds, offering good opportunities to perceive things we hold as daily and ordinary, in a yet critical and multi-dimensional new way.

After completing a study for mechanical engineering, attending a MBA program was the next step to increase my existing skillset. The decision for the program at HDA was based on the very good reputation, feedback from colleagues as well as the part-time approach.
